Leaving Facebook?

May 26, 2010

Leaving Facebook?

After recent concerns about Facebook privacy issues it has been reported that approximately 31% of users stated the easy access to personal information as their primary reason for leaving Facebook .

Over recent months we have seen a mass of concern over Facebook privacy issues flood across the Internet following the launch of a huge privacy overhaul 5 months ago. The overhaul combined with the recent introduction of the Open Graph has left many users confused and exposed to the public eye.

“Add to that ancient, expletive-laden IMs from Mark Zuckerberg (CEO), sites calling for users to quit, a Time Magazine cover and some promising Facebook alternatives, and you’ve got a legit protest movement.”

The recent uproar incited a survey which asked the reasons behind people’s plans of leaving Facebook. Of the 5,000 votes only a mere 31% portrayed their loyalty to the social media giant, with approximately the same amount proclaiming Facebook privacy issues to be their reason for absconding.

Eagerly awaited by Facebook’s dedicated fans, new privacy controls are to be announced today. No clue has been given as to what the features might look like but what we do know is unless they encompass the users’ expectations of manageable, easy-to-use protection, loyalties will be wavered and people will be leaving Facebook.
